  2. FULL-TIME: Home is where the turmoil is for Rafa Benitez's Chelsea as visitors Southampton come from two goals down to earn a point. Demba Ba scored his first Premier League goal for the club at home and his third in 11 days against their opponents before Eden Hazard put the Blues in a comfortable lead before the break. But substitute Rickie Lambert struck two minutes and 47 seconds after coming on and Jason Puncheon grabbed a point with a wonderful equaliser to push Saints three clear of the drop zone.

  3. 90+3

    Southampton look comfortable at the back as they deal with another long ball looking for Demba Ba.

  4. 90+2

    Juan Mata's cross is poor as is Fernando Torres' from the right which drifts straight out of play and he gets some terrible stick from the home fans.

  5. 90+1

    Desperate defending from the visitors now as they sit back in numbers hoping to hold out for a point.

  6. 90

    There will be four added minutes of stoppage time at Stamford Bridge. Are we going to get a dramatic late winner?

  7. 88

    Gary Cahill is up in the Saints box and he claims he's brought down, but nothing is doing. Referee Michael Oliver waves play on.

  8. 87

    David Luiz gives the ball away and Southampton look to counter, but the Brazilian wins it back and now they've been awarded a free-kick on halfway.

  9. 85

    Chelsea will be 13 points behind Manchester United if the score stays like this.

  10. 84

    WIDE!! Fernando Torres comes inside Jos Hooiveld before lashing his right-foot shot wide of the near post.

  11. 83

    YELLOW CARD: David Luiz blocks Gaston Ramirez for a blatant foul and referee Michael Oliver has no hesitation in making the first booking of the match.

  12. 82

    Frantic defending from the visitors as Demba Ba's strike is blocked and then Torres attempts a scissor-kick from the edge of the box.

  13. 80

    We're in for a great finish to this game. Southampton heads never dropped even when they went two goals down tonight. It's been a great testament to the way Nigel Adkins' side have played.

  14. 78

    SUBSTITUTION: Fernando Torres comes on for Frank Lampard. It will mean a 4-4-2 for Chelsea!

  15. 77

    Guess who's coming on for Chelsea? Torres is stripping off and preparing to make his entrance.

  16. 76

    At the other end, Chelsea win a free-kick about 30-yards from goal, but David Luiz's strike is charged down by the wall despite claims for a penalty by the home supporters.

  17. Magnificent equaliser for Southampton and superb play down the left from 17-year-old Luke Shaw, who beat Cesar Azpilicueta before delivering a cross which sat up nicely for Puncheon to smash his effort into the back of the net in a blink of an eye.
